In the least couple of years, I’ve enjoyed reading the posts of several bloggers who are trying to read 52 books in 52 weeks.
With The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies due out this spring, I thought it would be a good idea to focus on book-reading for 2008.
I’ve also wanted to find a good way for me to keep track of the books I’ve read. I experimented a bit with Shelfari, but didn’t stick with it.
So, for 2008, I’ve decided to do the 52 books in 52 weeks meme (and encourage others to do so).
My approach will be to update this post periodically throughout the year to keep the running tally in one place.
